Fidler and other deputies brought clothes and toys for the family.

"I think that he was very nice to take me and my other brothers to safety. I think if he hadn’t had come I would get burned,” said Harley Herisse who was saved by the deputy.

The family is still without a home and most of their belongings.

"That's the best thing that they're going to help. So I appreciate that. Thanks to our deputy. I say thank you for all of them. Thank you. I love everybody, " said the boys' father Eltony Herisse.
